Drama ensued during the burial of popular Kikuyu musician Timothy Njuguna also known as Mighty Salim in Subukia, Nakuru County when politicians took to the podium to address mourners.

Chief Administrative Secretary for The National Treasury and Planning Nelson Gaichuhie was heckled off the microphone by angry mourners when he started speaking about the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Gaichuhie, a former Subukia Member of Parliament, found himself in a tight corner when he tried to defend BBI after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who spoke before him, asked mourners to reject the document which is being pushed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga. 

"Kuria have told you that BBI is bad but that is not true. We will come and educate you on it is benefits..." he said before he was cut short by mourners who chanted 'we don't! we don't! 

But Gaichuhie stood his ground and told off the crowd insisting they couldn't intimidate him easily as he was not a coward.

"You cannot intimidate me by trying to shout me down. You can't and that is for sure," the CAS said making the mourners to boo him more. 

"Let's have respect for each other as BBI will come and either pass or fail but us will remain. And more importantly let us separate BBI from Raila as he has nothing to do with it. When 2022 comes we will vote for whoever we want," Gaichuhie said.

The former MP was among politicians who attended the burial at NYS grounds that was attended by hundreds of Mighty's friends and fans.

Others were Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, Moses Kuria and a number of elected and nominated Members of County Assemblies.

Musicians led by legendary Wanganangu, Karanja David, Muigai wa Njoroge, Samidoh, Gachathi wa Thuo, Gathee wa Njeri, Eddie Gathenge, Jose Gatutura, Lady Wanja, Kui wa Ng'ang'a among others were also present to pay their last respect to their colleague.
